    Most likely going to be a stupid question, but if I don't have bluetooth on this computer (lest I don't think it do) and wanted to use real controllers (wiimote, classic, nunchuck, gamecube (& or XBOX (360?))) with the dolphin emulator, what would I need to install

    Windows 7, 32 bit, if it helps.

    You need Bluetooth. End of story.

    Would I need a BT (bluetooth) dongle in a USB port? If so, I think i'll stick with my physical Wii.

    Any means of getting Bluetooth to work.

    Mind if I ask why? It's hardly a big deal having a tiny BT adaptor stuck in a USB port.

    No...it's not required. If you download and install Bluetoothemulator, you're good to go. You might want to put your sensor bar above your PC, though (or use the '2 candles' trick).

    Good luck. [​IMG]





    ...


    And in case you believed any of that, here's the truth: without bluetooth, you have about the same chance of getting your wiimote to work as trying to drive a car without wheels. But hey...feel free to try it yourself.
    (perhaps waving "up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right" with your wiimote in front of your PC will automatically unlock a hidden bluetooth setting). [​IMG]
